Show & Tell: Feb - April 2015

Post by Alina0210 on Tue Feb 24, 2015 9:16 pm

Im new here, but I haven't found a Show & Tell for this year. - So I thought I would be proactive and start one Smile

"This is our Cozy Little Corner down the hall from the Pros ;)where we just post anything we've been working on that we want to share.

Everyone has varying skills, so please don't be shy to post....even if you see someone's painting that look waaaaay too amazing.

It just takes PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE. You can even see that if you look at some of the pros and what they posted when they first started in the forum. "

So ill guess i'll start... my kids love Guardians of the Galaxy, so I decided to surprise them by painting this... they really liked it, and wanted me to do it again on them... I needed to make it in a lighter brown, but I just worked with what I had.

My first sugar skull attempt. It's not perfect but I still like it well enough.

I used Starblends for the white base, red roses, pink cheeks and black around my eyes...and then of course wolfe black for line work, TAG teal, and TAG green.

Practicing roses and shading. The roses turned out nice, the shading not so much.

Thanks! I'm starting to get the hang of them. I definitely like doing the buds better than the full bloom.

to post photos or images on the forum - (directions for posting from cell phone, i assume computer is same or similar) -

* in rows of icons at top of posting box, click on bottom left icon (computer screen with disk).

* when new box comes up, click "choose file".
from your computer or cell phone, go to images folder or location and click on one you want to upload.

* box will return with img title next to it - IMG followed by numbers and ending with "edit.jpg".

under "resize images", click on drop down menu (800 px width), and choose 640 px width. this is better size for image to fit in forum column.

then click "host it" button below.

* wait until new dialogue box comes up with 3 lines of url code. this may take awhile. click "host it" button again if nothing happens.
click and hold on middle line labeled "image", it will highlight, and row of icons will come up.
click on "copy" icon, far left, looks like 2 sheets of paper.

* click on computer icon with disk again, to close image box and return to posting box.

* click in posting box where you want to place image, hold or right click and chose "paste" icon.
url of image will paste into posting box. 
keep a line of space above and below url, to separate it from text. add text where you want.

* hit "send" below box to post image and text to forum.

p.s. sometimes photos post sideways on forum. to prevent this, crop photo (even a tiny bit) and save it first. post cropped version on the forum and it will be upright.

I get stuck right after I highlight the middle line. It's highlighted but I don't see the row of icons so I can't go any further than that.

are you using your cell phone, tablet, or computer?

on my cell phone, the choosing image box is juxtaposed just below the icons, so i can click on the icon, and the choosing image box goes away.

maybe try clicking outside of the choosing image box, to see if that makes it go away?

I don't think this is working but I'm going to see if the image shows once I hit send. If not, I'll try working on it more tomorrow.

Well, it worked but it's very small. Anyway, this is my daughter and her husband that I painted about a month ago. His teeth were challenging because of the facial hair. My daughters sugar skull design was my first attempt.

beautiful colors in the sugar skull Smile

don't forget to choose "resize image" 640 px, click "host it", and copy the middle line that says "image", not the top line that says "thumbnail", as kal mentioned.

Thank you. I'll get used to it soon. I've never had to do it that way before so it's really new to me.

Dude! Check out what I got to Paint today!


Purple Octopus Holding a Carrot! Woot!

Also did this one later for some one who saw the first one but only wanted a little one.

She was so stoked! When I showed her in the mirror she covered her mouth with her hand saying 'oh my god Very Happy ' and was totally shocked. Then told me "You're like a magician."

Yes! Very Happy
